the democracy journal. now i would like to introduce philip longman of the new america's foundation. >> [inaudible] so i'm going to talk about the american veterans experience with agent orange, and before i do i just want to say right off that despite my appearance and actually a little too young to have been in the vietnam war. i missed it by a year, so i say that so nobody will confuse me with a draft doctor or a vietnam veteran who's got attitude. if i go into a rage i'm doing it on behalf of veterans, not because i am one. the other somewhat complicating factor for me today is as paul mentioned i am the author of this book, "best care anywhere why the v.a. health care is better than yours." and i have ownership of that book. it's coming out in a second edition. i still stand by what it says, which essentially is the va, despite its mixed reputation, has undergone a quality revolution that has a lot to teach about reforming the rest of the health care system. thank you. but the va does have problems, and when it comes to agent orange, many of those problems are very revealed, an

"this was a screw up that could have been disastrous. we dodged a bullet but just barely." the stern words of the u.s. commander in chief were caused by quote unquote systemic failure, his language, that prevented officials from gaining the data to stop a christmas day al qaeda terrorist plot. a 23-year-old nigerian citizen named oumar if a huk abdul -- umar farouk abdulmutallab. he carried deadly explosives concealed in his underwear. the plane crossed the atlantic and in the approach to the detroit runway, abdulmutallab tried to detonate the bob, it failed. he was then overpowered by passengers. catastrophe was averted powerful enough to hav

is the idea of a vacation. now, this may be a disappearing dream in america. i understand that, but the idea of a vacation, the idea of a 40 hour week, no child labor, these were ideas that were promoted 150 years ago by people like karl marx, if i may utter the words. karl marx did not create the soviet union. karl marx was a 19th century radical who sat around trying to figure out how to help working people, and had this idea with many other people, that working people have to work less than an 80 hour week. so they could think, so they could enjoy life, so they could read books. and i guess him being karl marx, so that they could go to a lot of meetings. and eventually, form unions. and out of that effort, there came the first transnational labor movement that led to labor unions in time, and lead to social democratic parties in europe, and lead to specific legislation, like vacations and the eight hour day. so who goes around thinking i'm on vacation, thank god for the labor movement? not many. i don't know where we think these things come from, but the book is an attempt to anchor them
've watched both political parties facilitate this folly. in the america that i grew up in, we didn't have too big to fail. we had the creative destruction of capitalism. we didn't keep weak companies artificially alive, we let them go. so that more dynamic companies with smarter business models and better goods and services could take their place. giving all of us a higher standard of living. we let the market and the consumer decide. we didn't force people to buy or force them to drink new coke they didn't want. we live today without pa packard, studebaker and if we had to, we could live without chrysler and general motors. in the america i grew up in, you got a mortgage because you were qualified, not because you had a pulse. i worry about how america looks to the young people just out of college or graduate school, many of them are forced to take jobs that don't require a college degree, let alone a law degree or mba. many of them are up to their eyeballs in private debt as they watch the government saddle them with public debt that will burden them for the rest of their lives. we have alw

conversations have no place today in america. this term, this you know, like he's going to pass, for example, for white america because he's you know, got this negro die alikt, that's language that harken back to the 1950s and 60s and confirms to me a mind-set out of step with where america is. but i can assure you if i had as national chairman said that well, it's all behind us and he's apologized let's move on, no one would be accepting that. there has to be a consequence here if the standard is the one that was set in 2002 with trent lott. >> is the consequence that senator reid should step down? >> i believe it is. whether he steps down today or i retire him in november either way he will not be the leader in 2011. >> governor kaine. >> well, first, the senator said i mean, chairman steel said earlier that the republicans were not going to win it back so leader reid is going to be the leader. anybody looking at trent lott's statements praising somebody who had been a pro segregation candidate for president will see that there is no comparison between those comments and those of senator r

agency that falls under dhs. and this is the way the homeland security system is working in america. see all the different agencies, right? it's not that this reports to this and then up to secretary. instead, every single agency that you see here reports inlandly, all of them, directly to the office of the secretary of homeland security. now, i want you to see how many different people and jurisdictions we are talking about. more than 87,000 federal state and local jurisdictions make up homeland security here in america. 230,000 employees fall under dhs. and that means all the different agencies, more than two dozen that these officials represent. and you have the tsa, customs and border protection, and citizen and immigration services, and immigration and customs enforcement, fema, and the secret service, and the coast guard. all of that today is what we are talking about when we see the huge web of agencies. not only is there information sharing among them but they are all reporting to the secretary of homeland security. it's up to that level to figure out how the different agencies a

and safer. broadband is working for america. >> we discuss the war in afghanistan, modernization and the future of the army. >>> good morning and welcome to this week in defense news. we are honored to have as our only guest, general george casey. he commanded u.s. and allied forces in iraq. let's take a look at the many challenges facing the army in this area of persistent conflict. at war continuously since 9-11, concerns are growing that the army is wearing out. of a force of 556,000, nearly half the army is deployed or stationed worldwide with 150,000 news in iraq and afghanistan. repeated year long combat tours strained soldiers and their families. posttraumatic stress is widespread. soldier suicide rates hit record highs. young officers are quitting leaving a shortage of field grade leaders. they are promoting noncommissioned sphergs. the army added 26,000 troops to the ranks since 2004 with plans to add 26,000 more in the next three years. a full withdrawal from iraq should allow a certainly of 26,000 troops to afghanistan. will that be enough to rest weary combat units. g
with radical clerics, he gets training, bombs, arms and he tries to infiltrate america. >> this isn't a one time -- we've seen this repeatedly. how would you address this, given this peers to a new threat. >> i think the president's right, we have to find ways to deal with that, it is more difficult. the incidents are not on the scale as the professor was suggesting of 9/11. one thing i would point out is, they seem to continue and have been interested in a long, long time in blowing up airliners, that seems to be one of their main objectives in life, and they keep trying, i wouldn't be surprised if they try that again. and we got to be on the lookout for that. >> campbell, the president said, we need to appeal to muslims worldwide, think, militants in the last 10 years have used social networks to recruit, mobilize. here you have the father of the christmas day bomb er, the muslm community could serve as the first line of defense. here you have a father and other incidents where the muslim communities, where the relatives, the neighbors -- >> are already playing that role. >> and this is w
a long answer and i'll try to make it short. i think america is safer since 9/11, but we're certainly not safe. we have a long way to go, but i think we've made significant progress. i think that we've shown that al qaeda can land most anywhere. where there's fertile ground, they're going to breed. now, the latest, of course, is yemen, where there certainly is a significant challenge. al qaeda continues to inhibit areas along the afghan/pakistan border which, again, argues for success in afghanistan. but, i think that we have to continue our emphasis and our focus on the fact that this challenge is not going away any time soon. >> senator lieberman, to that point, you're the chairman of the homeland security committee, as calla adapts its tactics, have the united states kept up? are we ahead of them, if you will, not only improving airport security but looking overseas and our intelligence gathering, are we still ahead of the game? >> we're ahead of the game, but this is a war and there are times when i think because it is such an unconventional war that people in our country may forg

party's contributions to the vitality and strength of america. i would never have had the opportunity to serve in the congress had i not had the support and backing of my political party in connecticut over these years. i appreciate the passionate party activists who have never, ever faltered in their support of my efforts. i want to say thank you to my family for their tolerance of yet another generation of our family in the political arena. i'm especially indebted to jackie for her fierce loyalty, unyielding commitment to fairness and her unlimited capacity of empathy to the needs of others. she has truly been my anchor in these stormy political waters. there's nothing more pathetic in my view who announces they're only leaving public life to spend more time with their family. the result of this announcement today i hope will create that opportunity. but it's not the reason for my decision. i'm a very late arrival to fatherhood as many of you know, and i'm told repeatedly by some of you here today that these young children of miney grole -- will grow up very fast system of while the
america. janet napolitano will discuss how the terrorists got aboard that plane, and how we will strengthen aviation security going forward. but today i wanted to briefly summarize their conclusions and the steps i ordered to in an ever-changing world, our first line of defense is accurate intelligence they shared, integrated, analyzed, and acted upon quickly and effectively. after the 9/11 attacks, that is what the report achieved and what our community does every day. unfortunately that is not what happened in a lead up to christmas day. shortcomings' occurred in three broad and compound in ways. although we have learned a great deal about the affiliate in yemen, we knew that they sought to strike the united states and the they were recruiting operatives to do so. the intelligence community did not prioritize particular streams of intelligence. second, this contributed to a larger failure analysis, a failure to connect the dots of intelligence that existed across the community which, together, could have revealed what the attacker was planning. third, there are shortcoming

,000 times. all right. and the president went to state, the obvious, that america is at wash with al-qaeda. >> let's be clear about what this moment demands. we are at war. we are at war against al-qaeda, a far-reaching network of violence and hatred that attacked us on 9/11 that killed 3,000 innocent people and plotting to strike us again. we'll do whatever it takes to defeat them. >> bill: okay, fine. another rallying cry to defeat al-qaeda. haven't we seen the movie before? this is not a knock at president obama, but there was absolutely nothing new in his presentation today. america remains on the defenses on the war on terror. we're not taking the fight to the enemy with the exception of drone attacks. president, once again, went out of his way saying that most muslims do not support al-qaeda. i think we all know that by now. that the terrorists will be defeated by bringing the world together against them. after one year in office mr. obama is not close to doing that. and policies on civilian trials for overseas terrorists surely have not made us safer. talking points believes t

the cracked creal live at 7:00 a.m. on c-span. this is c-span's america and the courts. next supreme court justice, ruth bader againstburg and melanne vs verveer. hometown, and this is my favorite lecture series, too. among our president's innovations, he created a new post at the state department, ambassador at large for global women's issues. and for that important post, he chose melanne verveer, an altogether fitting appointment, freeing women worldwide from fear and want and enabling them to develop their talents without artificial restraint is the mission of the new ambassadorship. with melanne at the helm, i anticipate women's rights will become central to human rights agenda. she has an extraordinary capacity for, and in her new job, she has become a globetrotter. functioning fully on not more than four hours of sleep a night, and i know how that is, she prolongs her workday and i'm told she's able to adjust to time changes instantly. indicative of her awesome efficiency, she turned out thanksgiving dinner for her family just 48 hours after she returned from an arduous journey in as

morning america. >> one of the right things he did was treat this as a war on terror. we had no domestic attacks under bush. we've had one under obama. >> there was the matter of 9/11. now, the mayor, former mayor apologized for that misstatement. and stephanopoulos blogged his apology saying i should have pressed him on the misstatement. it was my mistake. that's one everyone jumped on. >> i think the media is largely self-correcting, but i like the idea of having maybe a producer go through and go through the transcript and make sure everything was on the up and up and posting something if it wasn't. but i have to say some fact checks are not checking facts. number one example was the associate the press did a fact check of sarah palin's book and one of the things was in the book she writes i'm driven by principle rather than ambition. they say she's wrong because writing the book proves she's ambitious. >> when rudy made that misstatement, and it's not just 9/11, there was the shoebomber and anthrax attacks, msnbc was all over it. on friday when i watched some of the fox opinion shows

by the roundtable. george will, liz cheney, of coach america, bob reich, al hunt, and judy woodruff from the pbs news hour. welcome to all of you. let's pick up on the discussion, george, what must president obama do now to actually match reagan's fate? the economy didn't come back in time for the midterms but came roaring back by the end of the first term. >> do what reagan did. deregulate the economy and cut taxes. that's not on the agenda. i think a phrase we'll hear more of is japan's lost decade. we may be in for a rapid recession, not followed by a rapped acceleration and rapid bounce. the economy's been growing for sixth months. two stimulus packages. now the house passed $154 million jobs program. the unemployment rate and underemployment rate is 17.3%. house holds are deleveragi. yet, household debt is still substantially above what it was a decade ago. 23% of american home owners are underwater. the mortgage is valued more than the remaining value of their house. it doesn't look good. >> a lost decade? >> i don't think so, but george is right. the data look terrible. the econom
